Nintendo of America
For more than 25 years, Nintendo of America has partnered with Starlight to power one of its cornerstone programs, the Starlight® Fun Center®, enjoyed by thousands of hospitalized kids each year. Currently powered by Nintendo’s Wii U, Fun Centers are an awesome tool for children and hospital professionals to provide entertainment and distraction in the hospital. To date, over 8,500 Starlight Fun Centers have been donated to children’s hospitals and facilities across the US, and thousands more have been donated internationally.
In 2017, with Nintendo’s help, we plan to place more than 300 more Starlight Fun Centers and distribute the first Nintendo-themed Starlight Brave Gowns to help brighten the hospital experience for seriously ill children and their families.
